Project management


Effective project management is one essential pillar of our long-term success. Your projects are in good hands with our project management team. We put emphasis on goal-oriented team leadership with well-structured project management and cooperative collaboration together with customers and suppliers alike based on open communication. We are pleased to offer the following project management services:

  • Industrial integration management
  • Content and scope management
  • Appointment management
  • Proactive cost management
  • Procurement management
  • Human resource management

Process engineering


Process engineering for new plants as well as for the optimisation of already existing plants comprises the key services Process Design, Process Engineering and Research and Development.

Process Design (Basic Engineering) forms the basis with the preparation of Process Engineering concepts and reaction sequences.

In Process Engineering (Detail Engineering), the specifications for all performance parameters and design calculations are made.

In Research and Development we offer feasibility studies, simulations and pilot scale trials for the development of new process designs and for customer-specific adaptations of existing treatment procedures.

Mechanical engineering


The Mechanical Engineering is developed in close collaboration with our Process Engineering Planning.

Within Basic and Detail Engineering, we specify and dimension mechanical components. Afterwards we create installation and piping plans and work out process flow diagrams. Components are selected in close cooperation with approved subcontractors. Process flow diagrams are created using 2D-CAD systems with database connection while layout and pipeline planning are created using 3D-CAD systems.

Electrical engineering


Arcade takes on the complete planning and design of electrical systems.

For the implementation of your projects we provide the following electrical engineering services:

  • Creation of circuit diagrams
  • Design of control cabinets
  • Component specification and instrumentation
  • Creation of cable lists and route plans
  • Commissioning of installations

Instrumentation


A suitable selection and implementation of sensors and measurement devices are crucial factors in the functional capability of a control circuit and the success of the entire processing system. Therefore, we integrate the process instrumentation into the automation solution of a plant from the outset of the project.

Pressure, flow, temperature, conductivity-measurements or complex analysis of liquids – we select, specify, configure, install, parameterise the system and take the measurement into operation.

Our experience in dealing with measurement technology, combined with the technological understanding of the respective plant, are advantages for our customers in process instrumentation. We work together with all common suppliers of process measurement technology, please contact us for your individual solution.

Installation and Commissioning


Arcade maintains a team of site supervisors and commissioning engineers specialized in mechanical- or electrical engineering or industrial automation, whom can be deployed when and where required.

Inspection and certification


Arcade’s qualified and certified staff can take care of the inspection and qualification of your installations.

Proposed services include:

  • Subcontractor auditing
  • Technical inspections of equipment
  • Documentation audit
  • Weld inspections

For endoscopic inspections Arcade provides its own high-quality videoscope along with a certified inspection engineer.

Consulting


Arcade can provide its range of services on a consulting basis for those clients requiring short term or occasional technical expertise or additional engineering capacity. We provide our assistance at your own facilities, integrating with your existing teams. Our services include individual missions for specialist engineers, (CAD-) designers, site supervisors or general services requiring the deployment of multidisciplinary or autonomous teams.
